We had an interesting conversation going in our little community over on the PT board, and I and others thought it would be ripe for exploitation on the saga board. Are there deeper meanings to the hairstyles of Star Wars, and are any potential meanings intentional/significant to the saga? Let’s take a look at the Anakin Anakin starts off in TPM with a bowl cut head of hair. He is innocent and carefree. Similarly at the end of ROTJ, Luke’s hair seems a bit like Anakin – he has claimed his innocence and innate goodness by refusing the dark side. Anakin then transitions to a different style in AOTC, where he is somewhat more of a cocky guy but ultimately has his heart in the right place. Look at Commander Cody though – he had a shorter haircut that is somewhat reminiscent of AOTC Anakin, and he boasted to Obi-Wan in ROTS that he had never let him down. However, he was kind of a jerk because he ended up trying to shoot Obi-Wan in the back - but he thought he was doing the right thing! Anakin in ROTS has a wavy hairstyle that is emulated by Kylo Ren in TFA. As we know, both of these dudes turn to the dark side. Another trend: classy guys tend to have classy looking hair. Just look at Dooku And Obi-Wan Also, bald dudes tend to be evil in Star Wars. Just look at Darth Vader and Darth Maul! But then, we cannot forget the shiny dome of Master Windu: Truly a conundrum. So, individually, I think you could dismiss these as coincidences. Together however, they form what I would say to be a surprisingly-entertaining discussion topic! What say ye, saga fourm!
